about

loosely about galloping gertie, the tacoma narrows bridge who collapsed on the seventh of november, nineteenforty, but really more about love, because really, isn’t everything about love?

lyrics

you do nothing
to calm my fear of falling,
watching you twist and turn the night away;
restless bodies
trapped beneath sheets,
fighting for sleep.
my heart flexes the same way.
aeroelastic flutter eyelashes,
heart strings suspended,
snapping fingers against fingers.
garters for girders,
a plummet of pavement,
rattle them bones.
